755. "But What About Hebrews 10:26!" (Sinning Willfully and No Longer a Sacrifice for Sins)

“For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins …”
The problem with looking at a few Bible verses by themselves is that context gets lost and it can cause unnecessary fear and a misunderstanding of the good news. Our program this week tackles the last part of Hebrews chapter ten, where legalists and others have completely missed the point of what the writer has been saying throughout the book, leading up to this passage.

The main focus here isn’t about being in danger for sins committed (because everyone has done this), but it’s about rejecting the one sacrifice for sins which Jesus provided with the sacrifice of Himself, resulting in sins being taken away. The unbelief or rejection of this is what causes one to trample the Son of God underfoot, and regards as unclean the blood of the covenant by which He was sanctified, thereby insulting the Spirit of grace. Only Jesus is the guarantee of a better covenant (Hebrews 7:22).
